Are we really to believe that we would sent 8 people off into space to certain death with no prospect of getting back?

That seems to be the idea behind this episode - getting back is no longer an option. Or have I picked it up wrong?

I can understand long voyages being undertaken, but not one where they would not get back - wives and husbands and children appear to be waiting. I thought the idea was it was a six year mission or something. Not a 'point of no return' situation.

The Point Of No Return means that if they decide to cancel their journey they cant just simply turn around and fly back. They'll have to fly around Venus. Just like Apollo 13: They had to travel around the moon in order to get back to earth. Its not that they will never come back.
